Ordination of Seminarian Seth Lemaire to the Diaconate

Welcome Seminarian Seth Lemaire

In the bulletin of May 3rd, we announced the arrival of Seminarian Seth Lemaire here at St. Peter Parish. In the announcement of his arrival it was mentioned that he would be ordained to the diaconate in Rome this coming October. However, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the current situation in Italy, Bishop Deshotel has called Seth to orders with the other members of his class who are in seminary formation here in the US. Therefore, I am happy to announce that Seth will be ordained a transitional deacon on Saturday, May 23rd at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Lafayette.

This also means that Deacon Lemaire will have the opportunity to exercise his diaconal ministry while here at St. Peter’s. Our parish has been blessed in the past few years to have transitional deacons serving the needs of our people through preaching, baptizing, presiding at funerals and assisting couples preparing for marriage. Please join me in praying for Seth along with his two classmates (Casey Dugas and Connor Poirrier) and the eight permanent deacons that will be ordained on May 23rd.

Rescheduling of First Communion and Receiving RCIA Candidates into the Church

Now that our community is back in church for the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we are rescheduling two of the important sacramental events that had to be delayed. The following information is being made available in order that our community can join in the rescheduled celebrations and lift in prayer those parishioners who had to delay the reception of the sacraments.

First Communion - The First Communion Mass previously scheduled for April 26th will be celebrated at a special Mass next weekend, May 31st, at 9:00 am. An additional Mass is being offered in order for our First Communion families to have more invited guests than would be permissible during a regularly scheduled Mass. Each child will be given a designed number of guests who can be invited. The names of the invited guests will be checked at the entrance of the church. Only those individuals will be allowed in the church for this celebration. This will ensure that we do not exceed the maximum of the 25% of the allowed capacity for St. Peter’s.

RCIA - The reception into the Church of those RCIA candidates which would have taken place at the Easter Vigil will be celebrated next weekend, May 31st, at the 11:00 am Pentecost Mass. This will include the administering of the Sacrament of Baptism, Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist for those seeking full communion in the Catholic Church.

Please join us in prayer as we prepare to joyfully celebrate these important sacramental events with our beloved parishioners.
